When I was younger, I remember poring over the toy sections of our family’s Sears Wish Book and Service Merchandise catalog during the weeks and days leading up to that magical Christmas morning. As “low-church Protestants” this, coupled with preparation for our church’s children’s Christmas musical, was as close our family got to an Advent-type ritual.
While I was tempted to circle every single toy in our family’s catalogs (except maybe the
WWF WWE action figures, but that’s probably another post altogether), I would eventually take time to finely craft my Christmas Wish List, emphasizing the items that I really really REALLY wanted, instead of the ones that I merely really wanted. I’m not gonna lie. It was stressful. Being a kid in the 80’s was hard, y’all. With the Star Wars and the GI JOE and the Transformers and the LEGO and the Voltron and the Masters of the Universe and all things, it was a great time to be alive. And with all that awesomeness, it was almost impossible to narrow down my list to something manageable and realistic. But I did it.
If I was able to go back in time and talk to late-80’s me, I’d probably encourage him to push harder for the USS FLAG playset because…well…that thing was HUGE. And full of awesomeness.
As soon as our Thanksgiving feast was complete, our youngest began feverishly curating her wish list so she could put it in a letter for Santa Claus. She didn’t bring her letter when she got to visit Santa, but we’re dropping it in the mail very soon.
So it’s in this spirit that I’ve searched the Internet for some pretty cool stuff. And without further delay, I present to you the Life in the Fishbowl 2017 Christmas wish list. Enjoy. Continue reading Life in the Fishbowl’s 2017 Wish List
